Coffee Treat Holder

Any type of papercraft project that holds chocolate is fabulous.  Today's project uses the adorable little "coffee to go" cups.  The cups are only about 3" tall and 2" around — so cute and I've put some yummy Dove chocolates inside.

Coffee Treat HolderI started with 2 strips of Garden Green cardstock that are glued overlapping one end.  I punched both ends ofthe long strip using the Scallop Topper Punch.  I stamped the Festival of Tree Christmas tree with Garden Green ink and punched out with the coordinating punch.  I punched a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Decorative Label Punch and adhered that to the coffee holder.  Next put the tree over the label with dimensionals.  I added a Whisper White "to/from" tag.

Next I used a piece of Trim the Tree DSP and cut out a wrap for the coffee cup — glue it one with Tombow Multi Purpose Gllue (green glue).  I used a couple of glue dots to adhere the cup into the holder, adhere the top together to keep it snug and tie a bow with Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding.

Cardinal Coasters

I love making coasters for holiday gifts.  This year my coasters were cork — that was a first for me.  I found these coasters in a kitchen store and thought I would give it a try.  I made a gift box to store the coasters in so it really looked like a gift.

Cardinal CoastersI stamped the image from Beauty of the Season on the coasters with Memento Ink and colored it in with Blendability Markers.  I think it turned out great and I think my stampers did too.  So many of them chose this gift to make that I actually had to scramble to find more coasters.

Rudolph Brings a Trest

I love to make papercrafted treat holders as a fun surprise during the holidays. This fun Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer holds a KitKat bar.
This cute little guy is so quick to make. You start with a strip of Soft Suede cardstock that I punch with the Envelope Punch Board to create the reindeer neck. Don't forget to round the top corners of his head with the corner rounder on the Envelope Punch Board. I added some punch pieces to create his face and antlers. Glue the KitKat bar inside and I also adhered his head together to keep the treat inside. I tied some Old Olive carding around his neck and don't forget to add the red nose.
